Contacting and Serving

Hello Everyone,

I am writing late this week because of the national holiday yesterday in Argentina. Our p-day is today.

This week was great with a lot of contacting and meeting with members about the work. It was fun to get to know them. We even contacted into a girl from England and so we did the discussion in English. It was very different and cool. I may have been too giddy during the lesson.

For service this week we put in a second floor in a building and the work was very difficult. We had to saw the floor planks to the right length then nail them to the joists. The best part though was that it was for a contact that we did earlier in the week.  We have a lesson with him this week, he is super awesome.

I gave a talk on Sunday during sacrament and the members thought it was funny. Today we ate at a Pizza libre with some recent converts. I ate 14 slices :)

La Ciudad Tres Arroyos

Hola Todos,

This week was long because my companion and I arrived here new together and we are kind of opening up the area again. So we did A LOT of contacting. It was fun. We talked to the members in our area and they are nice. I played the piano yesterday during Sunday meetings. We also had a Branch (Rama) baptism on Saturday.

The apartment here in this area is nice. The branch is fairly big with about 50 members that actively attend. So in the City Tres Arroyos there are two branches and I am assigned to Rama 1. We walk everywhere and there is some distance to deal with. I am accustomed to it.

Well I hope you all have a good week

Last Week in Patagones

I was transferred out of the Patagones area to Tres Arroyos with Elder McClintock. Because of traveling all day yesterday for the transfer, we have P-day today. Last Monday, in Patagones, we played basketball with some kids, at the gym atenas. On Tuesday, I played soccer with all the kids at the branch. That night Elder Frampton went to Bahia. Wednesday we handed out more then 200 invitation slips for English classes for Friday. A lot of people attempted to talk to me in English, it was fun.

Friday we went to the English clase and none of the people who we gave invitation to come, but some members and their friends came. Saturday we went to a basketball game of our investigator. We got the transfer call a 10 o'clock at night. Sunday I gave a talk about Jesus Christ and said goodbye to everyone. After church we went to a birthday party, super fun.

It was sad to leave, but I excited to be here in Tres Arroyos ... it's super nice.

Bahia Blanca - Visa Time

Hello everyone,

This last week I spent most of the time in Bahia Blanca with Elder Driggs who was my MTC companion. We traveled there to take care of Visa stuff. It was a fun week as we worked in Elder Driggs' first area, General Aries. I also was able to see Elder Tew and Elder Evanson from my MTC group. We went to Subway and McDonalds (only area in the mission to have those restaurants) and it was so good. I got a free Mcflurry.

I returned to my area on Thursday night. On Sunday our investigator come again and we plan on baptizing her this next Sunday. We also ate steak and potatoes for lunch and had a salad with ranch.

Well this will probably be my last week in Patagones as transfers are this coming Saturday.
